This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

"I’m a doubles player but played my first singles round recently and loved it!  So many good and friendly players and I learnt so much about my game and what I need to do to improve!  Really bought on my doubles game too. Really loving the league."

We were pleased to welcome 3 new players to Sutton Tennis League this time round and one of these went on to win the group. There was some exciting tennis played but unfortunately it was a generally quiet round with 3 players not managing to play any matches... don't forget another time we're here to help if you're having problems arranging your matches. Hope you'll join us again in the next round!

Group Summary:

It was a successful league debut for Neall who topped the group with 3 wins and picked up the midway bonus points for early match scheduling. He finished 4 points clear of runner up Stephen, who held off Neall's "rocket serves" to earn a hard fought win. This was Stephen's only match so who knows where he might have finished if he'd played more matches! Jane and Ram both played a match each but lost to champ Neall.

Final Rankings:

  1. Neall De Beer [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Stephen Totman [W1] 2 RUNNER UP
  3. Jane Liddall [L1]
  4. Ram Krish [L1]
  5. Ian Bignell
  6. Ian Dunn 8.1
  7. Jo Bignell 9.2
